April 23 Is A Big Day For Borderlands 3
April 23 will be a big day for Borderlands 3 as Gearbox adds its new Mayhem Mode 2.0 update. It starts the “Revenge of the Cartels” seasonal event.
Mayhem Mode 2.0 includes over 25 new modifiers rated from Easy, Medium, Hard, and Very Hard levels. However, Easy modifiers are usually beneficial to the player. They include perks like Galaxy Brain, which increases the size of enemy heads to make it easier to get critical hits. The rest only give enemies a more significant advantage.
Medium level modifiers are where the challenge starts to increase. It will star at Mayhem level 2.
Floor Is Lava
Gearbox teases a Medium modifier called “Floor is Lava”. It encourages you to keep moving at all times by forming a pool of damaging lava under the player if they stand still for too long. As you can expect, you will be able to earn more powerful weapons as you make your way through the Mayhem ranks.
Gearbox notes that modifiers get selected at random. But the number of modifiers and their difficulty ratings are always the same for each Mayhem level. The Gearbox also reveals Big Kick Energy which not only increases the player’s weapon damage but also increases the recoil and spread.
Revenge Of The Cartels
However, from April 23 until June 4, you can enjoy Revenge of the Cartels. It is a new seasonal even featuring an all-new area, new enemy types, limited-time Challenges, tons of new legendaries and anointments.
Borderlands 3: Challenges Increase As Levels Increase
Naturally, challenges keep on increasing as you increase the levels. However, the same concludes for the loot that drops as well. The enemy health, shield, and armour stats increase with each Mayhem level.
Weapons that drop in each level also increase. One will also find eight new legendary weapons on Mayhem level 6 or above like the Sand Hawk auto sniper. It fires a chain of nine bullets that move in a pattern like a hawk flapping its wings.
Mayhem Mode Ladder
For those who enjoy competition, a Mayhem Mode Ladder will track and display a list of the final vault hunters. However, players don’t have to wait too long to dive into the chaos finally.
